In brief: Hillary Clinton back to work

US secretary of state Hillary Clinton is expected to return to work next week, almost three weeks after being sidelined by a concussion.

Spokesman Philippe Reines said Mrs Clinton continues to recuperate at home and will resume her office schedule next week.

He said she had no schedule this week because of a long-planned holiday.

Aides and doctors said Mrs Clinton contracted a stomach virus in early December and became dehydrated, then fainted, fell and hit her head.

She was diagnosed with a concussion on December 13 and has not been seen in public since.

Mrs Clinton's illness led her to cancel an overseas trip and scheduled testimony before Congress about the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi.

Quest to find owner of ring

Finding a lost wedding ring along a snowy road is hard enough. But a Californian also has to track down the man it belongs to.

Douglas Benedetti said he met the man, but does not know his name or phone number. Mr Benedetti said the man was searching for the ring on the shoulder of Interstate 80 in the Sierra Mountains earlier this month. He told Mr Benedetti he had lost the ring while putting chains on his vehicle.

Mr Benedetti wants to return the ring. But all he has to go on is its inscription: 'Lisa, 5th June, 2010'.
